not worth the gold not even copper
Id buy it for anything under 50k, because then i can sell it for profit. Shit is useless, wtf am i suppose to do with another ugly mount in the spellbook? No mount that can be bought it worth it, there is no achievement in that. Im happy with the gladiator mount, one accually have to somewhat perform to get it.

It definitely depends heavily on luck.
Never saw soneone on my server selling it, though. But then again...as far as I know the people here, it probably would not cost less than 100-200k anyway.
Doubt that anyone would allow you to bring a third person and sell it for profit.
Don't let it discourage you, though, Burning Legion is one of the biggest realms in Europe, so the price is substantially lower than on low-med pop servers, I assume.
However, remember! In 5.2 Skyshards go BoA. Which means people with multiple 90 characters doing dailies will now be able to collect them all on one character and get that mount. The price will drop for sure, as usual, and it will become a little less rare.
Not even remotely close.
I basically already bought it when I paid 7k for the mount from August Celestials, which is the exact same model with just a orange vs red color.
And I have used it a grand total of once, just to see it compared to the Onyx and the Azure one I already have.
Out of all these ultra-hard mounts to get, only Phosphorescent Stone Drake stands out a little bit more than others.
It's not about their looks really, although they could make them a little bit different from the others hence the effort.
People crave them for mere purpose of having them, so the "exact same model with just a orange vs red color" is not an argument :P
I bought mine on Darkspear Alliance last night for 17k. Surprised it goes for so much more, I was happy with the price regardless.
I bought it myself, for 20k. Wanted it for a long time and someone saved me days of farming for 20k =D So yes I would buy it ;D
Based on the subjective point of what he looks like, I'd put his worth at around 1k gold, maybe 2? It's really bland and really not that distinctive.
Heck, I find even A'lar to be ugly nowadays. Every time I see someone on that I mount my Pureblood Firehawk to compare and I simply cannot see how A'lar could be better. Dated model, bland texture, even the color is not so good.
But people want to be exclusive, so they take a mount that is not so used to stand out. You might as well mount the Bronze Drake, since nobody ever uses that anymore. You stand out as much as mounting a Plagued Proto Drake.
i'd buy it, but i would never pay more than 50.000 for it. Probably around 15-35k

And yea, TLPD is better looking. TLPD is one of the best looking mount ingame imo, together with the other protos
No, I won't buy it. At least in my case.
On Frostmourne it's relatively easy to find someone selling it for about 10-15k. Once I bother to hit Exalted with August Celestials I'll probably buy it.
Never, I couldn't imagine paying 150k+ on a mount, especially one that's just a recolour of so many other mounts with some lightning on it.
As for the Shards drop chance being compared to Ashes? It's RNG, pure and simple. One person may get 10 shards in a week of dailies but never ever see Ashes, alternatively another person may see Ashes drop 4 times in 10 runs, but not get any Shards.
